What Are Custom Views And Why Do I Need Them?

Custom Views can be set for every recruiter in your agency. Depending on how your agency operates, they may wish to view data in a certain way.

With Custom views, Chameleon-i users can choose the data that they want to be displayed in their grids.

As well as a default view, there is also the opportunity to create multiple Custom Views, across all record types.

It’s a brilliant way to help speed up the recruitment process.

The benefits of Custom Views

  1. Speed up search
  2. Speed up your work processes
  3. Share Custom Views
  4. The exported file will be identical to your Custom View

Custom Views give recruiters an organised, custom set of data within their recruitment software. This helps to find the person they want, faster, meaning that recruiters can get their tasks done quickly.

You can specify skills, location, experience – it’s up to you what you want to include. There’s no need to waste time contacting people that aren’t suitable for what you need.

The option to share Custom Views gives the whole team an opportunity to combine knowledge, and again will help to speed up recruitment processes.

When the time comes to exporting data, the file will appear exactly the same as it does in your Custom View.

Custom Views are available for Companies, Clients, Candidates, Vacancies and Placements.

Save time with Custom Views, increase efficiency and stay professional by contacting the right people, every time.
